Ordered for Book Club

by Terry H on Jul 27, 2012

I personally did not enjoy this book. It was cleverly written. I like my books to have a little more action. Others in the book club rated this a little more highly as it dealt with feelings and emotions.


Indescribably original, moving piece of fiction.

Meet Charlie Gordon. He is just like you and me, set aside the fact that he was born with a very low IQ. The novel flows as his personnal journal entries, as he is ultimetly chosen for an expirimental brain sugery to increase his intelligence. Follow along his amazing journey through his world, and you will forver be touched. See through his eyes, in this suspensful and unbelievable tale of love, learning and loss. Charlie Gordon will be a character, not soon forgotton. This will be a novel that will be read from generation to generation.
